Feb. 25, 2013...TIME SENSITIVE ALERT!!

Dear Save Our Summers - NC Supporter,

Will it ever end? Once again, bills aimed at skirting or “gutting” the school calendar law are coming out of the woodwork down at the NC General Assembly – and they are being rushed through at breakneck speed! 

The threat is very serious, especially since many of the new members (and there are a lot) don’t know the background surrounding the law. They see this only as a “restore local control” issue because that’s what their superintendents and school boards are telling them – over and over. Powerful lobbyists are re-enforcing that thought.....

WHO ARE WE?
SOS North Carolina is a volunteer coalition of parents, grandparents, education professionals and others who seek to establish, protect and maintain a more traditional school calendar for elementary and secondary schools throughout the state. The objective is to preserve the summer months for outside-the-classroom childhood and family learning experiences and for valuable "real-life” opportunities.

Snapshot Summary....HOW DID IT HAPPEN?

  YOUR HELP IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED!

SOS-NC is long past the days when it could rely solely on a hand-full of volunteers working a few months out of the year to carry out its mission. This grassroots organization now requires ongoing attention and planning on a large-scale basis. Every year, we have to play “watchdog” (in a major way), present research and data, offer viable suggestions, be present for votes on the House and Senate floors, and attend committee and one-on-one meetings. In other words, in order to keep the 2004 school calendar law from becoming history, SOS-NC has to stay on the front lines, not only through emails and phone calls, but by being a regular presence at the General Assembly.

Also, it is imperative that we continue to keep this website going, as it is the only place where citizens, businesses, etc. (both in and out of state) can go for comprehensive information on NC’s school calendar issues.

That is why SOS-NC asks you to consider a contribution. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ MORE AND CONTRIBUTE!
